It was September 27th, 2016 when Dr. Jonathan Keeble graced the Callaway Auditorium stage. It was the season opening concert that was simply and appropriately named “Air” and it featured a World Premiere Event! Concerto for Flute and Orchestra, penned by Dr. Richard Prior, debuted that night and Dr. Jonathan Keeble was the guest soloist. Dr. Keeble is a world renowned flutist, He is Professor of Flute, and Chair of the Wind Division at the University of Illinois, and is also past-President of the National Flute Association.
In this episode of Off the Podium, Dr. Keeble is again our guest, but in a much more informal setting with no travel involved. Off the Podium is a series of podcasts that feature casual conversations between Maestro Richard Prior and one guest. These have helped turn on a small light for us, to see into the lives of some of our LSO family. This is an opportune time to do this type of content since it is all done electronically. Social distancing doesn’t mean we need to stop communicating, and if not for this series, you may not ever have the occasion to get to know some of the guests. Please enjoy this latest episode featuring Dr. Jonathan Keeble!
